Their http://hdl.handle.net links are supposed to work, and to let them change their local address for items and redirect to the new address via a permanent handle. But it doesn't seem to point anywhere existent at the moment (at least for many people including me). Currently working links for the Smithsonian items are:
Hough: https://repository.si.edu/handle/10088/13062
Eggers: https://repository.si.edu/handle/10088/13071
Means: https://repository.si.edu/handle/10088/15071
Trousdale: https://repository.si.edu/handle/10088/1332
Krieger: https://repository.si.edu/handle/10088/10135

I found a working link for the Krieger Philippine book that allows for a free pdf download.
